Nose jewelry

These are the first series of my nose pieces presented in Art Kitchen for their "Cult Club : Pret a Couture" exhibition. ( ) .

When I was studying theatre design I always kept an eye on the jewelry department of my school. At some point I came across an old image of traditional Maori jewelry that covered the nose and sometimes the neck, so I decided to do something similar using more modern textures.
 Here are my first two attempts at making facial jewelry. (special thanks to monsieur plastic for being my model).
